OK, my house is near therev memorial (I think). Anyway, I wandered over to it and realised there was a lot more water than before. The animals were frolicking in it. No, wait. That over thing. Drowning.post-11731-073126500 1287441755_thumb.jp

:( Those poor animals. After I took this screen, I spun round and realised there were more of them. Like about 8 to 10 seagulls screaming at me.

pig rides £1 for half an hour.

Ok bit of an Alan Partridge style sell here. 'Pig racing'; each pig has a jockey, we put them into boxed in lanes in the style of a race track, someone shout 'go!' and they're off. There could even be on track betting :eyebrows:

I'm sure someone could be clever with buttons and doors to create some dog race style 'traps' for them to start in.

the texture pack says the water and lava doesnt animate, when it does. just patch and install the pack.

edit: the better grass flag is quite interesting - what it does is add grass along the whole side of a block, if its neighbouring block above, or below the side, is also faced with grass. eg:

Thanks!

512x512 texture pack?! wow. I wonder if it impacts performance.

Bloody hell you've got me mucking about with texture packs again :omg:

I'm now running with a mashup of Eld's artpack (for items), doku's RPG texture pack (for GUI stuff) and the Axebanes HD texture pack (for terrain and everthing else) there might be some painterly pack bits in there too! :blink:

Just wish the painterly guy would do a 32x32 or higher pack and I'd be all set

I must have zero imagination, I fired this up the other day, built a big hole so the zombies couldn't get me, and then couldn't think of anything else to do.

Possibly log onto the muk server under a pseudonym and create a gigantic labyrinth of passages deep, deep underground?

A few people have requested to get hold of the world/map file from the server to play with offline.

So here is the backup directory where you can download the map from: http://home.bencoleman.co.uk/mc/backups

Note.

1) The files are pretty big and they will be going out "uploaded" from my broadband connection, so the download won't be quick and please don't abuse it!

2) If you see 'permission denied' it means the backup is still being written to, try an older file.

3) Occasionally the backup fails and creates a tiny file, if you download it and it's only a few MB (or less) it's corrupted. This seems to be a bug in MCAdmin, outside of my control.

I think I just need someone to play it with maybe.

I sunk days and days and days into the single player. I dunno why it's not clicking for you. I sounds like you never really gave it a chance. Don't worry about building crazy structures, set yourself little goals like; finding iron, crafting a full set of armour, getting some diamonds, getting enough coal and sand for loads of glass, etc. The game sort of comes naturally then, for example my base building has been an organic process rather than than some imagination fuelled mega project. "Oh I've got enough iron spare to make a bucket, cool! lets play with waterfalls", and so on. Combine this with the excitement and terror of spelunking a deep cave and hearing the brittle clatter of a skeleton or sinister hisssssss of a creeper, really is something.

Multiplayer at the moment is really a glorified Lego kit, with even less "game" than single player (as there are no monsters or player damage). But it's still immense fun

Did you look at any of the getting started guides? It can be a tad overwhelming at the start.

Absolutely this.

I got sick of creepers wrecking up my new wheat-making base every morning so I've put it on hold in a more modest form and am exploring a huge cave. Then I ran out of tools so I had to do a wood-gathering trip before I can go back, but on that wood-gathering trip I found a spring which I can turn into a death-trap for spiders, to let me get enough string to make a bow. That'll show the monsters in those caves! Once I've got that cave system done, I'll consider what to do with my spoils while taking a break above-ground to put the second floor on that base. I'll have to think about my idea for relocating to a nicer site I've found where water, wood, and mining are adjacent. Probably I'll go into the next cave system first. I hatched a good way of making semiautomatic doors to lock behind me and get mobs off my tail!

I currently have a network of little settlements spread out about the countryside, rather than one uber-base, because I have lots of different ideas.

It's about survival first, then it's about protection, and then it's about going out and taking the world. There's a whole ebb and flow in that as you gain and expend resources and ambitions.

Yeah I had a look at some guides, I built some sticks and things. I found it quite boring.

I'm not quite sure but I get the impression you might have been expecting the game to be something it isn't.

Anyhow I think you should give it another shot. Holler in here if you're stuck/confused/frustrated with anything (Well not anything, Minecraft mostly).

Nah I've watched my brother and his friend play it together for hours, wondering why he found it addictive (so I know how to build a load of stuff etc) but when I played it myself, I still didn't really get it. You can build stuff, but none of it really seems to do anything. I just don't get why, for example, you'd spend hours building a big mario that doesn't do anything.
